we still might have to deal with a few thunderstorms through the next two days. and, yes, thursday unfortunately right back to what we've been through. overnight tonight we'll start to build in the cooler, dryer air from the north. 60s is what a lot of us will get down to. maybe just a few of us lower 70s. through the morning hours and into the upper 60s through the 70s we'll go. no chance of rain overnight through the morning hours. but once we get to the afternoon, still a slight chance of a few storms rolling around. i'll show you exactly why. 80-degree temperatures is where we'll top out at. there were mainly showers that built in through today and the last shower right there through much of the metro we've got still a lot of clouds here tonight. here is a look at the current cold front making its way in. these are actual air temperatures. 70s. but that dew point, remember, if it's over 65, it's humid. if it's 70 and above really humid. nearly 80-degree dew point in fredericksburg. that is just a steam room, if you call it that. here is a front coming through. it's going to die out as it does so.
but i still have to put a chance of some scattered storms afternoon. sun sets. the storm chances go away. we go overnight tuesday to wednesday. there is all of the humidity coming back. and just again scattered storm chances through the day on wednesday and even wednesday evening. thursday we bring more sunshine in with humidity that is around. unfortunately that's not a nice forecast. temperatures will be in the upper 80s. but the heat index will be into the 90s. so enjoy tomorrow, wednesday the humidity is back around. and we may be unfortunately looking at triple digit heat index by next weekend if we get the air temperatures of 95. >> pool time. got to go to the pool. >> yep. >> find some way to be cool. >> thanks a lot. well, it's not the stanley cup, but it is a cup. >> yes. but, do you know what, though, all these guys are going to be playing for the capitals in the next two, three, four years, so i think it's a very good sign for the capitals. 11 caps got to hoist the cup anyway. not the cup they were hoping for, but a good piece of good news for the future of the
ó# % oil. sliming more miles of the gulf coast every day. and in washington big oil lobbyists were looking to slime our senators too. they tried to pressure jim webb and mark warner to vote for a big oil bailout worth 47 billion dollars. senators webb and warner had two words for big oil. no. way. they voted to hold oil companies accountable so they can't pollute and get away with it.
senators webb and warner, keep standing up to big oil and fighting for america's clean energy future. it's time for 9 sports with brett haber, the best sports in town. >> don't turn around. someone might be gaining on you. page made that quote famous and clinton portis has taken it to heart because he did turn around. saw somebody gaining on him and he sped up. the redskins running back appears to have been reborn this off season, recommitted to working out and being a team leader. he appears faster and fitter than in recent years and it may have to do with the signing of former pro bowler larry johnsson and willie parker who are out to steal his gig. i spoke to portis and he says you ain't stealing nothing. >> i was excited. i think that we lit the fire of
desire. you know, like there's actually people that felt like they can come here and it's going to be sweet. like, oh, i have a chance to compete for the starting job. >> no, they don't, says clinton. meanwhile after months of stalling, macintosh finally signed his contract today to be one year, 1.8. macintosh was disappointed the skins didn't offer him a long-term deal. the playoff didn't have a very happy ending for the capitals, but there is a silver lining tonight. their little brothers, the minor league hershey bears on whose roster there is 11 players who spent time with the caps this year just won the calleder cup. game six tonight against texas and it was a blowout. karl ulzner played 22 games for the caps this year. they are going nuts in chocolate town tonight. the hershey bears win the cup for the third time in five years. the future for the caps is very
bright. >> the team wants to do anything we wanted and we were capable of winning this and i'm glad we achieved it. >> it's a great group of guys and like you saw in the series, we saw a lot of very successful team. they have a lot of spirit. it's unbelievable. >> steven strasburg's career is one week old and he already has a trophy. he was named the national league player of the week today. hardly surprising. the kid won his first two starts. gave up three runs combined striking out 22. only one pitcher in history has more in his big league game. officially for ten days john wall will be the guy the wizards take with the number one pick in the draft. the question is what will the wizards do after that. ernie has two more picks in the top 25. luke worked out with the team. he averageded 20 and 10 in south
bend but feels a bit overlooked. >> i'm going through my college career i think i've had probably one of the most or the most productive college career with any player in this draft and i still continue to get a lack of respect and i just use that as motivation. >> okay. finally tonight, so much for burying the hatchet. listen to chicago's adam burish talking about chris pronger after chicago won the cup. >> can you tell us what you really think about chris pronger now. >> i think he's the biggest idiot in the league. if i see him out there, i might punch him. >> okay. >> i love that. >> is one of them retiring? >> no, no, no. but i figured after chicago won the cup that burish would say all is well that ends well. he's like, no, forget him. he's a jerk. here's my stanley cup. >> biggest idiot in the league. >> i think he's made his position clear, don't you? >> crystal. we'll be right back.
